Ages for spring 2020 leagues are based on players age as of May 1st, 2020.
  Shetland Mini League (ages 4/5) Tee Ball
The Shetland  League is an instructional Tee Ball League with the batter hitting off a tee after four pitches from the coach. Your child must be four years old by the start of the season.  If your child will play in this league, they will not try out. The coaches of this program select the teams in conjunction with the League Director. Players of the same household are assigned to the same team. This is an introductory and instructional league only.  Games are approx. one hour long, they are not scored and teams do not participate in the end of season tournament. During the season, there are two games a week and a practice on Saturday. In the fall season the Shetland Mini League is combined with the Shetland League. Please contact League Director with questions.

  Pinto League (ages 7/8)
The Pinto League is an instructional coach pitch league and works to get the player ready for the Mustang League where players will pitch for the first time. While this League remains grounded in the teachings of fundamental instruction, the Pinto League season differs from the Shetland League in that score is kept and the concept of winning/losing with grace is introduced and developed. The typical time commitment during the regular season is two games during the week and a team practice on Saturday. Teams will participate in an end of season tournament. Please contact League Director with questions.

During the regular season, the typical time commitment is two games during the week and a practice on Saturdays.  The teams will compete in an end of season tournament.
